Pricing & Booking

It's really easy! We'll talk or message first, briefly, to determine what your needs are and what kind of session will work best for those needs. Then you just go to the Book section and select your date and time. You'll automatically receive an invoice for the required deposit. Once that's paid you will be officially booked!
Deposits for all sessions are $100 and are non-refundable. The balance is due the day before your session or anytime before that!
Cash, Check or Credit Card via PayPal all work for me.
Depending on the type of session you book, the price includes anything from a pre-consultation and strategy session, styling, creative brainstorming, the actual photoshoot and my creative vision, hand editing and retouched images, high-redolution digital files of your images both downable from an online gallery and delivered via flash drive and a post-session strategy session.
All deposits are non-refundable. However, I do understand unforeseen events happen and we work together to reschedule your session or other alternative solutions.
I always like to speak in person first and if it's convenient for everyone an in person meeting is awesome! If that doesn't work a video call is the next best thing!
Any costs for entry or location fees for desired shoot spots will be additional. I will make sure to bring these to your attention ahead of time. Other costs that might come up for you would be if you need to shop for wardrobe prior to your session. Hair and makeup is included in some of my sessions. For those that it is not, if you want hair and makeup services, that would be an additional cost.

 

Photography

It depends on the session. I love candid moments and real emotions. So I will guide you through your session to create this. Sometimes I pose you for a certain image. Regardless, I want you to be comfortable and strive to make this happen.
As your session unfolds a flow begins to occur not only between you and I but within yourself. I have a process that helps this to happen within the designated time we will have together. So, sessions cannot be split over separate days. My suggestion is to always make a day of it! Take the day off work, get child care covered so you can focus on you. Of course, family sessions are different and we are always able to accomplish what we need to in our time together.
You receive edited images only. Each image is carefully handled and is a representation of my work. Be sure to look at my portfolio and make sure my work is a good fit for you. Additionally, you don't want all the photos! I delete all unusable images first, then reduce the amount of duplicates. As well, often what seems like a good shot while we are shooting, doesn't translate the energy or vibe once it's on its own. You get the best of the best and trust me, a ton of images!
